York, PA – The Eagles Nest, a Branch of First Capital Federal Credit Union opened its doors today at Dover Area High School. First Capital partnered with Dover in 2019 with the intention of operating a credit union branch at the new High School. After many long months of planning, preparing and delays due to the pandemic, First Capital is proud to announce the Eagles Nest has officially opened.
“When Dover Area School District approached First Capital about this idea, we jumped at the opportunity,” said Sue DeStephano, President/CEO. “Financial education is one of our core objectives and opening a branch inside Dover Area High School is just another way to enhance what we are already doing and potentially change the lives of some Dover students.”
All those affiliated with the Dover Area School District are eligible to join the Credit Union. This includes faculty, staff, students, and their families. With the branch opening, First Capital also unveiled a brand-new program exclusive to Dover Area School District students called Dover Dollar$.
With this program, for every deposit or check cashed of $20 or more, the student will receive a stamp on his/her very own stamp card. After 20 stamps, he/she can turn that card in for a $20 deposit into his/her account, courtesy of First Capital!
